Guitar Hero 5 ‘Solus’ has now fallen to £14.93 at The Hut in a deal which undercuts the next best price by just under £3. So if you’ve been holding out for a good deal on GH5, and stumbling back from the pub to play Guitar Hero 3 classics like ‘Paint it Black’, ‘Knights of Cydonia’ or ‘Even Flow’, simply will not do anymore, this is definitely worth the investment.
Of course, with plastic guitars being a permanent feature in so many living rooms, and Guitar Hero multiplayer having practically taken over the seaside arcades, there can’t be a single person who’s not heard of it. Now up the fifth iteration of the series, Activison are certainly keeping up the momentum, and despite their attempts to incorporate turntablism into the franchise with DJ Hero, it seems that the electric guitar is still what it’s all about. Guitar Hero 5 is the best edition to date, and although the core gameplay principle still remains more or less the same, Activison have made several changes.
With a juke box-type-set-list appearing as soon as you switch it, GH5’s menu system is more streamlined compared to its predecessors, and it’s easier to just get straight into the game and navigate the menu. Activison have also decided to drop all of the storyline nonsense and money bonuses, and now players can drop in out of the game as they choose, add more players and change difficulty without having to keep restarting. The game allows players to have the whole band experience (bass, drums, guitar, and vocals) but also offers any combination they choose – including four guitars if you happen to have four massive egos who all refuse to jump on the drums or bass.
